    Finally finished Wheeljack and added Seaspray as well (kinda popular). I tried to make both accurate to G1 toys and cartoons (with some light exceptions).

    * I think I need to add a white separating line on Wheeljack's chest to separate the red from the green stripes??

    *** UPDATE: Gave Seaspray a new head!

    Thanks Eisen! It actually took a lot of time to get it to look somewhat like Wheeljack but it works I guess.

    Definitely do it man! The foot mod was very simple. Either I spun the feet around or I switched the legs and then spun the feet around (been a while), give it a try and you'll see it works good. I hope you can do this one as well, it'd be cool to see how you present it!!

    Awesome dude. They look great, I really like Seaspray. I sent you a PM btw.
    I think you should add some different color aside from white in wheel jacks shoulders, NOTHING CRAZY! Just something to make him stand out a little, maybe a shadowy grey trim or something.

    The SS looks nice, of course, but that Wheeljack really caught me off guard! He looks great! I never would have thought of that! Good work, I'm sure you just inspired a bunch of people to do this project.

    Thanks guys! I'd like to do more to Wheeljack but couldn't find any workable wings that could be hidden in alt. mode. Plus, I would've loved to have found some usable launcher or something for his shoulder.

    Hey thanks!! I'll post up some more hopefully this evening. * Hey guys, I had a couple pms on why the Wheeljack is so white in some areas where a lot could've been more detailed. I just wanted to mimic the original G1 which had less detail as well. I may end up adding some shadow detail here and there though. THANKS!!

    NEW Head for Seaspray

    Modified an Activator OP head a bit and then mounted it on Seaspray's body for a better look!

    Oddly, I prefer the first head on Seaspray more. Regardless, I really think you did a nice job with these two. Wheeljack is especially nice :)

    Thanks guys, I'm happy with Seaspray but I wish I could do something for Wheeljack's wings! I'm looking forward to the new Voyager class Seaspray, I just WISH they'd put out a freakin Wheekjack already!

    * Gave him an Autobot symbol!

    Wow, these both came out awesome! I think that Seaspray is better than the new one coming out by a lot!
